Forest Bathing Cleanses the Soul
August 29, 2016 — From the get-go, let me clarify that this is NOT an article about an actual bath in the woods. At least not one that involves stripping down and soaping up. No, this article is about the cleansing of one’s psychological state via a mindful walk through the woods. Soul wash instead of body wash. Intrigued?
Forest bathing is quite simply a slow, relatively short walk in the woods with little intention other than simply achieving a more present state of mind. It is not a hike nor is it a power walk. It is the act of meandering through a wooded area and simply being aware of anything and everything that activates one of your five senses – visual, audio, tactile, taste and scent.
